Personally, i love season 1 ‘till Cottonmouth’s death, ‘cause Mahershala Ali gave the character some depth and life that kept me going with joy, so much so that i almost quit the show when the stupid decision to kill him early was made.
After that, i got mixed feelings from the show. The musics added, combined with the OST where on point, the story was kinda decent on some points, and poor in others. As for Luke, he was okay, but i always loved the other characters more,and how the show makes Harlem feel like a character, it’s really well made.
To sum it up, i think the show would benefit much more if it wasn’t about Luke Cage, but a mundane story with it’s characters and intrigues
